ORANGE GAME DAY: Syracuse looks for bounce-back win vs. North Carolina (preview)

The Syracuse Orange (15-9, 6-7 ACC) will try to bounce back when they host the North Carolina Tar Heels (19-5, 11-2 ACC) tonight at 7 p.m. 

Syracuse is coming off a 77-68 home loss to Clemson last Saturday despite erasing a 15-point deficit with three minutes left. It was just the second time this season that the Orange lost on their home court. 

North Carolina got back in the win column last Saturday with a 75-72 win at Miami, improving to 6-1 on the road.


The Orange and Tar Heels last met on January 13, and it was one-sided as UNC picked up a 103-67 victory, the team’s worst loss in ACC play. 

This will be the 24th matchup between the two programs, with North Carolina winning 17 of the previous 23. Syracuse last beat the Tar Heels on March 1, 2021. 

Doug Sherman and Jimmy Dykes will have the call on ESPN.
